January TOTM: The Resolution
Grilled Mahi-Mahi With an arugula salad tossed in a lemon vinaigrette and served with fresh avocado! cotija cheese, and diced mango. Served with Diablo sauce on a corn tortilla.
I don't think this was as good as Naughty Santa, it was next to impossible to actually taste the fish. The trailer park trashy saved the day.
madre de dios. check out march:
Torchy's March Taco of the Month: The Ace of Spades
An 8" tortilla (Yea- it's THAT big!) stuffed with a jalapeno sausage link & smoked beef brisket. Topped with a fried egg, shredded cheese, Green Chile Queso, cilantro, queso fresco, sour cream AND Diablo Hot Sauce.
Lemmy would be proud.
had the trailer park trashy the other day. it was glorious. they have one off of 620 and anderson mill area now.
The ace of spades is coming back? Oh hell yeah. That taco rules.
the democrat or the trashy trailer park
The brushfire. I always get one when I hit up Torchy's.
Never tried Torchys, gonna have to give it a whirl
Crossroads, Mr Pink, Democrat and Baja Shrimp is my general order. If I am hungover I will add a Trailor Park to the mix.
have you had the tacos at papalote? it excels at what torchy's tries to do, and ends up ok
I don't even know what papalote is. I'm just $#@!ing with you.
Tried Torchy's for the first time today. The Ace of Spades is absurd.
I want to eat that taco and listen to this song.

I was really disappointed by the Ace of Spades. It was clearly a case of the whole being less than the sum of its parts.
Ate at Torchy's Houston yesterday for the first time. Had a baja shrimp and democrat. Both were good (baja shrimp was best) but not as amazing as I remember from Austin. Biggest problem for me was the corn tortillas, which just weren't very good. I will be back someday but it's not worth the insane crowds/parking cluster$#@! they're getting right now.
Hmm, I gave this place another shot. Had some queso and a dirty Sanchez. Queso was good...decent amount of spiciness.
The taco was ok, nothing mind blowing. Not sure I see what the big deal is. Perhaps I need to go a third time before writing this place off.
Went all Motörhead this morning
Paleo be damned (finding myself saying that a lot lately)
Is Torchy's a nightmare this week b/c of SXSW?
